What Rick said, it may take a long while for that to dry enough for a varnish. A coat of shellac, then a top coat of the varnish of your choice. I prefer the alkyd resin varieties, and if you get one made with soya oil (P&L 38) it will have minimal effect on the appearance you have now. The alkd/soya will also shift less over time (won’t yellow as much as urethane/linseed). The downside is that P&L 38 is really hard to locate, at least around me.
